Why do cats go absolutely bananas for catnip? As soon as the catnip gets sprinkled, it’s as if a switch flips in their little kitty brains. They go from dignified aristocrats to wild party animals. It all comes down to chemistry: catnip contains a compound called nepetalactone. When cats sniff or lick catnip, nepetalactone binds to receptors in their nasal tissue, triggering a cascade of euphoria. We can’t blame them, who could resist a chance to let loose in this stressful world? One thing’s for sure, though: the catnip high doesn’t last forever. After about 15 minutes, the high starts to fade, and your furry friend will return to their typical, more dignified self. So, there you have it, the truth behind why cats are head over paws for catnip.
